I am a Lecturer in Health Economics at the Manchester Centre for Health Economics. I earned an MSc in Economics (2008) and a PhD in Economics (2012) from the University of Southern Denmark. I joined the Manchester Centre for Health Economics in May 2012 and have held visiting positions at the University of Southern Denmark and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
My primary research interest is the design and effects of performance incentives in health care. Most of my research takes point of departure in incentive theory and is conducted using microeconometric analyses of large data sets. My current research focus is on the intended and unintended effects of using financial penalties to incentivise quality improvement and on payment models for integrated care.
In 2013 I was awarded an Individual Postdoctoral Grant from The Danish Council for Independent Research | Social Sciences for the project Efficient provision of organizational incentives in public procurement and regulation: Exploring reference-dependence and risk. I am a co-investigator on the Horizon 2020 funded project Sustainable Integrated Care Models for Moltiborditiy Delivery, Financing and Performance.
